My job as a wedding photographer is the best thing ever. I invest so much time with my couples, their families and guests that doing anything less than documenting the full story of your day just won’t do. I’m incredibly passionate about doing an amazing job for every one of my couples.

I want to be there to capture all details; the flowers, shoes and keepsakes; the tears and hugs when those closest to you see you in your dress for the first time; the nervous giggles and tissue grabbing moments during the ceremony. After the formal photographs we can steal away and capture some precious moments of you both. I capture the speeches. Sunset, cutting the cake, first dance, shots at the bar and throwing moves on the dancefloor.


Both of the packages below include all the original images, plus a selection that are edited. Usually between 200-250. Premium package images are delivered on a wooden USB pen with 6x4 ” prints in a custom made box.

Coverage usually begins early-doors and ends when I feel like I’ve captured enough party shots at night. One thing is certain – I won’t be running out of the door the moment the closing note of the first dance ends. Instead you will find me in the middle of the dance-floor with you and your loved ones, capturing the joy of the night.


Premium

  • Pre-wedding consultation to discuss your wedding photography requirements.
    I’ll meet up with you to primarily get to know you and find out the details of the day. Wedding photography is an intimate thing, it’s the biggest day of your life and I get to be part of it. You need to be comfortable with me – even though I shoot unobtrusively. I’ll also help guide the running order – the photography can sometimes dictate where the formal family shots are taken, at what time, and at what location. If you don’t live in the North West, we can Facetime or Skype.

  • Full day’s attendance, from pre-wedding preparation to the dancing begins (12hrs)
    I'm on hand all day to capture the key wedding moments in an unobtrusive style. There are no additional charges for multiple locations. I start early. I’ll aim to get to the Bridegroom first. After, I’ll meet the Bride whilst she prepares her makeup, hair and dress. I mainly shoot reportage style, in the background until the dress is on – then we’ll shoot some beauty portraits. After that it’s the venue to photograph the Bridegroom and the guests arriving. Then some informal photos of the Bride arriving and the ceremony – I usually stand at the front to capture those special vows. I’ll move round the church, shooting guests and wide-angle shots. After that it’s either formal shots outside with the family (you can choose how many), or we head off to a location to shoot just the two of you (can take around 45 minutes - 1 hour). Then it’s the reception. Musicians, guests, speeches, more formal photographs and the most important pictures of the day – Golden Hour! The time when the light is the best (1.5hrs before sunset). Finally, it’s the cake, the dance and the party – I won’t head home early.

  • Engagement Shoot
    A perfect place to practice your posing and get some beautiful romantic shots while you’re at it! I love to experiment with new ideas, so we could head to the city, the beach, the woods or even up a mountain!

  • 250 retouched images.
    My pictures are edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. This post-production takes around 2-3 days to complete – and as someone who has spent years professionally retouching shots in advertising and graphic design, I take great pride in my work (sometimes it takes longer than planned).

  • Original images (typically around 1,000 pictures).
    You might see images of an auntie or nephew that I left out of the retouched ones.

  • Download of all edited files ready for social media.
    All 250 retouched pictures will also be downsized from the raw images to enable you to upload to social media.

  • PDF book of images organised by sections of the day.
    The pictures are grouped into 4 sections, and displayed in a pdf book. Each picture is carefully placed with another. Preparation, Ceremony, Romance & Party. This is so you can check and make any amends before it’s printed.

  • 30x30cm wedding photobook printed in Amsterdam.

  • Custom made wooden photobox with 16-GB USB flash drive containing retouched shots, pdf book and all original images.
    The box is handmade from high-quality alder wood.
